Interview with Nubi

Hi Nubi, thank you for agreeing to this interview.
Oltobooks : Tell us a little about yourself and your background?
Nubi : I am first a music artist, but writing has always been something of a second passion for me, it comes easy, so writing poetry etc is another outlet for me to express myself, tell stories and entertain. I wrote a poem in high school once that won a national contest. I didn't think in my mind then that I wanted to write books, i just wanted to be creative and have the world recognize my creativity. Here I am years later living my dream in real time.
Oltobooks : What are your ambitions for your writing career?
Nubi : I would love to branch my writings out in a few ways; as a speaker, perhaps a couple books made into movies one day, and to always be able to show others how to do what I do (leverage their skills and talents into an additional income). Writing does so much for the writer and the reader, it's impossible to stick oneself in a box from it!
Oltobooks : When did you decide to become a writer?
Nubi : I decided to become a writer in 2011.
Oltobooks : Why do you write?
Nubi : I write to heal myself, to release frustrations, to tell life stories to help others, and to entertain.
Oltobooks : What made you decide to sit down and actually start something?
Nubi : When I realized after a meet and greet, everyone had interest in what I was speaking on, I was encouraged and shown that my words needed to be heard by a much larger crowd. That someone else out in the world needed to hear my stories and thoughts and aspirations.
Oltobooks : Where do your ideas come from?
Nubi : My ideas come from all sorts of places! My own personal life, conversations I have with friends, and sometimes daydreams/dreams.
Oltobooks : What is the hardest thing about writing?
Nubi : Doing it, lol. No really, I can plot everything out and write notes and characters and a synopsis right off the top. I can start a few chapters and then it's a lull where I don't write for days at a time, but I will be definitely thinking about the book, seeing myself write it, telling myself I need to get back to writing but that lull is the hardest part to get over. Because to date, I have published 3 books and I am on my 4th and 5th one now (yes simultaneously) and each book I have hit a lull during writing it, but each lull was different in the amount of time it lasted. But once I get past that lull, the rest of the book flies out and I can finally send it to my editors.
Oltobooks : What is the easiest thing about writing?
Nubi : I think the easiest thing about writing is designing the book cover. I have 3 designers on staff and they each have a certain vibe about them.
Oltobooks : If this book is part of a series, tell us a little about it?
Nubi : Bittersweet is a 3 book series that is based on true events of unrequited love, sex, crime, betrayal and ultimately perseverance of a teen to woman type story.
Oltobooks : What are your thoughts on writing a book series?
Nubi : I think no one should say that they are going to write a book series. I think the book determines if YOU are going to make it a series after you begun writing it.
Oltobooks : What is your favourite positive saying?
Nubi : I AM.
Oltobooks : Where can you see yourself in 5 years’ time?
Nubi : In five years time, I will be a New York Times best selling author, still doing music of course, but also speaking about my book and experiences in various platforms to individuals young and old.
Oltobooks : What advice would you give to your younger self?
Nubi : Don't wait, don't get sidetracked by men with nothing to offer you but a good feeling for a fleeting moment. Take that risk and do it by yourself. Do not wait to begin your dream, your parents will love you still so don't worry about what they think. You are more amazing than you give yourself credit for and stay organized and consistent!

Latest Poem

Don't I feel like a loser when I learn you're through with me.
It was news to everyone, especially to me.
Don't I feel pathetic, like there's something wrong with me.
She is far more beautiful than I could ever be.
I stand here null and solemn, though it must be written on my face,
that I've found before the world what you couldn't say to my face.
You blow right on by me with your new love, hand in hand.
So smug, haughty, and thoughtless.  You are not much of a man.
Filled with anger, through and through, I feel like I could drown.
I lift my glass and drink fast to chase the feeling down.
I close my eyes.  I still see your face.  Somehow I should have known.
You kill me inside with a passing glance, and now my heart grows cold.
So much time spent in a one sided love was wasted all on you.
Don't I feel like a loser for ever caring about you.
